Brookdale Senior Living - So They Say You Can Dance
by Lleyton Rutz
4-Hers from all over Placer County (and their parents) visited Brookdale Retirement home on 12/10/17 to help make holiday cards for friends and family. We were excited to meet a resident who was a former 4-Her and one who was a veteran of the Korean War. They all had great stories to share. The event was a joint community service activity between the Presidential Volunteer Service Award projects (North & South) and Eureka Granite Bay 4-H. While everyone worked, six 4-H members demonstrated their musical talents on the Dulcimer harp, flute, violin, and piano. It was great to see them smile, clap and even sing along. The piano music inspired a couple of residents to start dancing. It was great to see all the residents happy. Brookdale told us the next day how our activity was still being talked about by the residents. They invited us to plan several more events with them through the year.
